Once viewed as merely a blemish on the urban landscape, graffiti today has evolved into a legitimate art form in its own right, influencing entertainment, advertising, fashion and other creative industries worldwide.
In this unprecedented book, master graffiti artist Scape Martinez shows how he does his thing, offering streetwise advice to help other "writers" create maximum-impact, legally sanctioned work. Step by step, he lays out the philosophies and realities of the genre. From picking a "tag" and developing letterforms, to the logistics of prepping a wall and working a spray can in a painterly fashion, Graff will help you find your style and leave your mark—large and loud.

For all who are interested and want to get the art perspective of Graffiti, this is the book. The book not only delivers a brief, historical history of how it all began. But continues giving historical facts on each page which I found very interesting. He provides the information needed for anyone who is a beginner, from what tools you will need, to the different styles of lettering, as well as a reference to Graffiti terminology. I especially loved how he expressed everything about Graff as a professional artist creating art. Not as a person tagging up walls illegally. He keeps it real and clean.
